Why Choose Fin Fish?
Fin fish is a staple when it comes to center-of-the-plate presentations. That’s due to the sheer variety offered within the category. You can rest assured that you’ll find the perfect fish to complement your menu, and we’re here to help with any special requests.
At Merrick Seafood, we supply all manner of fin fish – from local favorites such as grouper and American red snapper to international specialties like sole, turbot, and bronzini. As a wholesale seafood distributor, we’re able to source sustainable local fish from the Gulf of Mexico and Florida’s Atlantic Coast, as well as species from all over the globe – including the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas. With how quickly the seafood industry changes, our purchasing team continuously vet new products to supply to our customers.
Our team of cutting experts can cut your fish any way you’d like, including specialty cuts. If you prefer your fish whole, we can scale and gut at your request. At Merrick Seafood, we receive, process, portion, filet, butterfly, and distribute fresh seafood from our facility in downtown Cape Coral.

At Merrick Seafood, sustainability is at our core.
We understand that our actions today have consequences tomorrow. This knowledge shapes our day-to-day decisions and the long-term vision for our company. For decades, Merrick Seafood has been proud to source from sustainable, eco-conscious vendors both locally and around the world. Our suppliers care just as much about the future of our industry as we do.
We carefully source our products by assessing each vendor. This entails quality checks to measure their sustainability efforts. Since we hold ourselves to a high standard, we expect the same from our partners. So when you buy from Merrick Seafood, you’ll always be fully informed about the fish you purchase.
By keeping our sustainability effort fluid, we can be sure that our practices are in line with the ever-changing ecosystem of the ocean. It’s crucial that our marine life has an adequate number of adults to maintain a steady reproduction rate. Allowing adult fish to thrive enables their young to grow into a harvestable size. Thus, the reproductive cycle can continue indefinitely.
Naturally, seasonality plays a significant role in our purchasing decisions. We closely monitor the best places and times to source the highest quality seafood. No matter where we source our seafood, sustainability always remains a top priority.
